Dimitri from Paris Philly Sound

Click here to download Get Down With the Philly Sound by Dimitri from Paris sampler

This compilation is the first ever to document the birth of disco in Philadelphia and the work of the unsung musicians who played on the numerous hits that came out from the Philadelphia scene.
The compilation exclusively features five remixes and four edits by Dimitri from Paris.

This release is a historical documentation of the birth of modern dance or nightclub music. Every remixer, DJ and dancefloor has been influenced by the content of this release. Gamble and Huff granted BBE access to multi track tapes for four tracks for Dimitri to create new mixes of their classic recordings.

A Tom Moulton Mix in the style of his legendary Sandpiper mix tapes brought him to the attention of Philly International and Salsoul records and started off the remix, available exclusively from the BBE website using download codes available to physical copy purchases. 

The release will be accompanied by extensive liner notes, pictures, interviews and anecdotes from the legendary players involved in the music.

Disco facts about this sampler:
  • Earl Young is founder of The Trammps and creator of the 4/4 disco drum pattern which laid the template for every dance record since.
  • Recording engineer Joe Tarsia founded Sigma Sound in 1968, and virtually of all the disco recordings released on Philadelphia International, Salsoul, Philly World, Gold Mind and Atlantic were made at his studio.
